As the last Cabinet member to speak at the Q&A session of the Legislature, PM Phuc said the road ahead requires constant innovations and reforms throughout the Government’s current term and beyond.

The road is not easy as Viet Nam needs to focus not only on economic growth but also growth quality amid fast and complicated changes of external environment as well as internal shortcomings.

The country’s population is expected to reach 96,963,958 early next year, we need to be well aware of that and place our care on each and every citizen so that no one is left behind, the Government chief underlined.

He vowed to drastically restructure the economy and handle shortcomings arising in the process of private economic development while reducing budget overspending to 3.5% GDP by 2020.

Since he took office in 2016, PM Phuc called for innovations from central to local levels to fully tap the country’s development potential.

He has pressed all Cabinet members to be the pioneers in innovations to create substantial progresses in each of their assigned management domains.

PM Phuc had decided to establish his taskforce, lead by Minister-Chairman of the Government Office Mai Tien Dung, to monitor the implementation of tasks delegated to ministries, agencies and localities in 2016.

Last year, he set up his economic advisory group, consisting of economists working and living in both Vietnam and abroad to help him fine tune economic development policies.

The PM also formed a taskforce in April this year to inspect the performance of public duties, headed by Minister of Home Affairs Le Vinh Tan, to promote the sense of responsibility among cadres and public employees. /.
